Well, OK, actually it's Baldrick...

This is the episode in Series 3 (Victorian, I think) where George decides he's going to become clever by giving patronage to the new dictionary Dr. Johnson has been writing for ten years. Blackadder has also written a novel, which he terms his magnum opus, to which Baldrick replies that he, too, has a 'magnificent octopus' - a novel which, I believe, reads 'There once was a sweet little sausage called Baldrick. And he lived happily ever after.'

:octopus:

Yeah, I agree. Can't believe anyone found 'Mr Bean' funny. It was as about as humour filled as a particularly virulent skin disease.
